It’s never too early to begin another round of console wars, even when one side remains unannounced. Industry analyst Michael pachter has said the 3DS will outsell the PSP2, and called the coming battle “Kinect vs Move all over again”.

“Kinect is outselling Move because Kinect is new and different, while Move is very similar to the Wii,” Pachter told IncGamers.

“I think that the 3DS will outsell the PSP2, because the 3DS is new and different, while the PSP2 is likely going to be a souped up version of the old PSP. Thus, I think that 3DS will have greater success in capturing the consumer’s imagination.”

The latest intel from Microsoft suggest Kinect has sold over eight million units, although rival analysts suggest the four million strong Move may yet gain back lost ground.
